Possessing invested the final yr renovating a converted railway carriage on Dungeness Seaside, Mini Moderns didn’t have far to search for inspiration for their most recent wallpaper style. In truth, they just had to step out of the door and survey the captivating landscape and esoteric structures that populate the seaside.
The wallpaper characteristics a mass of shingle, punctuated by illustrated vignettes of quaint cabins, abandoned fishing boats and ramshackle huts. Anchoring the print are the 2 lighthouses that flank the Mini Moderns seaside home.
The design and style duo make clear: “We wished to capture the magical surroundings – the structures and factors of curiosity that anyone exploring the surrounding location will uncover. Our aim was to evoke the experience of currently being on Dungeness seashore. The landscape is in continuous flux – structures are decaying and turning out to be obsolete, while other folks are getting renovated or saved from decay at the hands of the severe factors. We wanted to capture a second in time – the time period of time that we observed the seashore.”
For decades, Dungeness has been a supply of inspiration for artists, from Eric Ravilious to Derek Jarman, and has featured as a distinctive place for movies, music video clips and television dramas. The landscape and the surrounding countryside has now become the inspiration for the Mini Moderns 2014 assortment, entitled ’Hinterland’, of which ‘Dungeness’ is the launch print.
Dungeness is available in 5 colourways: Washed Denim, Chalkhill Blue, Concrete, Pale Verdigris and Coach Emerald. £50 per roll, exclusive to minimoderns.com
